Kaizer Chiefs to sign three of Swallows players?

Dillan Solomons, Kamohelo Mahlatsi, and Lehlogonolo George Matlou were acquired by Kaizer Chiefs from Moroka Swallows FC, who had just barely avoided relegation to the GladAfrica Championship by winning the relegation/promotion playoffs.

In the playoffs, Moroka Swallows FC faced University of Pretoria FC and Cape Town All Stars. By a razor-thin margin, the Soweto club kept its place in the top division.

Ahead of the 2022–23 season, which will be managed by Arthur Zwane, who signed a three-year contract to become the new permanent head coach in the place of Stuart Baxter, the club sold the three players indicated above to its Soweto-based rivals, Kaizer Chiefs.

A source claims that the three players who left Swallows to join Kaizer Chiefs were only the first of many players who will leave the team.

The team now has 40 players on its roster, but they want to cut that number down to 25, which will be more manageable for the forthcoming season. Although the source's list of players isn't complete, it does contain some names that are anticipated to split ways with Swallows in the near future.

These players have been identified by the source:

"Thandani Ntshumayelo, Musa Nyatama, Cheeseboy Mokoena, Virgil Freese, and Khethukuthula Ndlovu are going, however the list is not yet complete. About 10 are traveling, the person said.
